Looks sweet. I'm not a lowrider guy, but I love all El Caminos. The front suspenion looks better than any 80's kit I've seen, is that from the 70 monte?

yes, the front suspension is from the 70 monte carlo kit.... they put very little effort into detailing the molded on front suspension....

Those hydro pumps are awesome! They're machined metal, right? I've been around a few lowriders in my time, they're just not my thing, but this is a clean build like most of them are. I do like the color, and I can't wait to see the engine. Keep it up! ;)

you can get more info here.... he is VERY reasonably priced.....

Well the prices are fair, least to say!, but for now i dont really need anything, and i actually have machines for this kinda

stuff in the workshop at home if it would come to that... thanks anyhow!

And you reminded me about the Layitlow forums... i pay too little attention to that site... maybe i should start posting again when i get to work on the -70 Lincoln..

Btw how about some pics of that sweet wagon i saw u was building on the L.i.L. Forums??
